Last month I asked our readers to complete the procrastination style survey . Thanks to everyone who participated in this survey. We had over 100 respondents! The pie chart below breaks-out the percentage for each procrastination style.
- 44% of the respondents were under 30
- 39% of the respondents were over 50
- Over-givers crossed all age groups except 20 and under.
Although different forces drive each procrastination style, structure is the one tool that helps keep any procrastinator on track. Scheduling and tracking your writing time on your calendar can increase your productivity. Start with manageable time expectations--something you know you can achieve. This sets the stage to keep your personal commitments. Slowly build your time commitment. This structure will keep you focused.
Try this for two or three weeks, and see if it impacts your writing. I'd love to hear from anyone who tries this strategy or already schedules their writing time.
